Wonwoo Kang (강원우), Skein relations for punctured surfaces

June 28 Friday @ 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM KST

Room B332, IBS (기초과학연구원)

Since the introduction of cluster algebras by Fomin and Zelevinsky in 2002, there has been significant interest in cluster algebras of surface type. These algebras are particularly noteworthy due to their ability to construct various combinatorial structures like snake graphs, T-paths, and posets, which are useful for proving key structural properties such as positivity or the existence of bases. In this talk, we will begin by presenting a cluster expansion formula that integrates the work of Musiker, Schiffler, and Williams with contributions from Wilson, utilizing poset representatives for arcs on triangulated surfaces. Using these posets and the expansion formula as tools, we will demonstrate skein relations, which resolve intersections or incompatibilities between arcs. Topologically, a skein relation replaces intersecting arcs or arcs with self-intersections with two sets of arcs that avoid the intersection differently. Additionally, we will show that all skein relations on punctured surfaces include a term that is not divisible by any coefficient variable. Consequently, we will see that the bangles and bracelets form spanning sets and exhibit linear independence. This work is done in collaboration with Esther Banaian and Elizabeth Kelley.
